How to reach Lesvos
Lesvos is not a main tourist destination; therefore there are relative few direct flights from Europe. You can of course always come via Athens or Thessalonica. Aegean/Olympic as members of Star Alliance can be combined with companies like British Airways or Lufthansa and your baggage is checked through to Mytilini (MJT), your final destination. Same happens with the Greek Skyexpress combined with Easy Jet and Condor. You can of course use low-cost companies like Ryanair but then you need to calculate some time to pick up your luggage and drop it to Aegean or Sky express. Better fly with handbag only. Locally you need just a couple of swimming suits, some T-shirts and light cloths. We have the beach towels!
